The “Harry Potter” movies proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are a lot of young viewers who enjoy movies about magic.
And the “Twilight” movies are proving that there are just as many viewers who will head to the cinema for movies about vampires.
Whether those viewers prefer that magic be done only by the characters from the world of “Harry Potter” or their movie vampires to come solely from the realm of “Twilight” remains to be seen, however.
More will be known today, when “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant” arrives in theaters.
Directed by Paul Weitz, “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant” stars John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Chris Massoglia, Josh Hutcherson, Ray Stevenson, Ken Watanabe, Patrick Fugit, Willem Dafoe, Orlando Jones and Jane Krakowski.
To get you in the mood, we have eight clips from the movie:
